Maria Willis

Active Inspirations / Our People / Maria Willis

Maria teaches the classical Hatha yoga ‘asanas’ in an explorative, mindful way, giving time and space to bring life to the spine and undo tension and stress. This gentle approach to Yoga, inspired by the teaching of Vanda Scaravelli, invites everyone to work with gravity and the breath to discover their own path to lightness and freedom in the body. Her experience of the transformative effect of yoga led her to give up her job as a modern languages teacher, although she still teaches privately and is an Examiner with the AQA.  She teaches adults and young people in tailored one-to-one sessions, small groups and classes in the Alton area.  She has worked with Dr Gail Davies – Mindfulness Trainer and Yoga Therapist. She is inspired by the teaching of Sophie Whiting, Diane Long and Sophy Hoare. She continues to develop her teaching practice and is completing an apprenticeship with the Inner Yoga Trust assisting with their teaching training programme.  Please contact Maria about her classes by email at maria@activeinpsirations.co.uk or on her mobile at +44(0) 7484 746521.
